The Deep End of the Sky
By Chad Lee Robinson of Pierre, South Dakota

Now available to buy.

The winner of TLP's fourth haiku chapbook competition, The Deep End of the Sky takes us on a journey through the vast expanses of the American prairie, where we see, hear and feel the farm landscape and its connection to the cosmos:

"The poems are uniquely American in their embrace of the vast landscape they inhabit. This chapbook collection has a wonderful continuity throughout, moving through sections and seasons in a seamless flow."
               Penny Harter, Judge, 2014 TLP Haiku Chapbook Contest

"Chad Lee Robinson uses words the way Frederic Remington used brush and bronze. He beckons the reader not only to the vast landscapes of North America's prairies, but also to the intimate center of human experience."
                                  Billie Wilson, Associate Editor of The Heron's Nest

"A rising star out of the West, Chad Lee Robinson celebrates the Great Plains with a fresh, unique voice."
           Marian Olson, HSA Merit Book Award-winning author of Desert Hours

"Robinson's book, The Deep End of the Sky, lets you breathe and see the prairie as a native. His haiku invite the reader to pause, stay awhile, and consider what it means and feels like to live on the prairie, not merely drive across it on a highway." 
                               Randy Brooks, Professor of English, Millikin University

"Reading The Deep End of the Sky is to experience a symphony."
             Michael McClintock, President of the United Haiku and Tanka Society

"Robinson has adapted the haiku form to an American Heartland and often rural setting. He is an alert and wise observer of such things as farm work, hunting and fishing. This is an outstanding collection of haiku by a young man who has mastered the form."   
             David Allan Evans, Poet Laureate of South Dakota
